At Home With Norman Podhoretz

posted on January 2, 2013

In the latest issue of Moment magazine, Robert S. Greenberger profiles 83-year-old Norman Podhoretz, the Jewish and politically conservative editor and thinker. “He is virtually the last surviving member of the New York Family, a group of mostly Jewish intellectuals who were at the cutting edge of left-wing politics in the middle of the 20th century,” Greenberger writes. “In the 1970s, Podhoretz scandalized the group—and broke permanently with many of his closest friends—by abandoning his long-held leftist views and turning to the political right, taking Commentary, the influential magazine he edited for 35 years, along with him. Later, he became the proud patriarch of a neoconservative family.”
